SUBJECT:      Ethics   and Compliance Office Resources


      The   Texas A&M University System is committed to the highest ethical and   compliance standards in all operational areas. Activities undertaken by   system faculty, staff and students should be conducted in accordance with   strict ethical principles and in compliance with federal and state laws and   regulations, system standards and other applicable requirements. We must   promote an organizational culture that encourages ethical conduct and a   commitment to compliance.

      The   System Ethics and Compliance Program was established in May 2012 with the   approval of System Policy 16.01 by the Board of Regents and my approval of   System Regulation 16.01.01. On May 4, 2012, I appointed Janet Smalley at the   System Ethics and Compliance Officer, reporting directly to the General   Counsel, with access to the Board of Regents Committee on Audit and myself.

      The   Risk, Fraud and Misconduct Hotline is independently operated and available 24   hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 1-888-501-3850. There is also a link on   the bottom of all System websites. The hotline is a telephone and web-based reporting   system operated by a third party vendor that provides a way to anonymously   report instances of misconduct.

      If   you have any questions related to the Ethics and Compliance program, please   contact Janet Smalley, System Ethics and Compliance Officer, at 979-458-6008   or by email at janetsmalley@tamus.edu, or your institutional compliance officer.
